    I remember a dude in the comments explaining why the alien didn't look like a zenomorph .. Now that I have watched Alien Covenant I can now find this dudes comment and let him know he's a complete DUMB ASS!!! LOL

    *Pre-Backlash* Ridley Scott: "It's not an Alien prequel."
    Yet it has a -Facehugger- Trilobite and a -Proto Xenomorph- Deacon.
    *Post-Backlash* Ridley Scott: Never mind, it actually IS an Alien prequel!

    At least it was mildly better than the sack of shit that was "Alien". I seriously cannot comprehend how people love Alien so much, yet think that prometheus is trash. The whole Alien franchise is just a bunch of B horror movies, that could either be a guilty pleasure, or seen for the badly written trash that they are.

    I wonder if you could do a review/thought video of the new Sequel "Alien: Covenant" trailer. And after you've seen the deleted scenes and the documentary on the blu-ray, this movie makes sense and is pretty badass.

    I thought this was FAR FAR better then what many did. However, saying that Alien an Aliens are far better but this was a solid B- C+ to me. An I think the sequel to this/tie in will make this better slightly better. As Jeremy said the look, editing, score of this film alone is better then the D or F grades many gave this.

    Prometheus is technically a prequel to alien, because the engineers basically made the alien race with the black goo, which they intended to use on earth to replace us with the alien race, so technically the alien at the end of the movie is the first alien ever!

      +Mikenactor First of all, Alien was a great film, and it left viewers with a lot of questions until Aliens came out. So no, that's not true. Infact, that makes the movies have a relevance and not just a worthless prequel.

      The acting was the same level as Alien. It was believable.


      Editing didn't have any issues from i remember, wtf.

    i think prometheus was a movie that was supposed to make you think. the fact that there was a crew and the way they died are not the things i remember getting out of the movie, but the questions the movie makes you take away with you are what makes this a good movie. why does the engineers create life? why do they decide to wipe out humans. How long has this been happening? Who made the engineers? what does the engineers world look like? this is not a movie where you look for mindless action like avengers.

    Alien movies best to worst list in my opinion.
    -Aliens (nuff said)
    -Alien (great scary movie. haunted me when I was a kid)
    -Alien3 (I like this movie, I'm in the small camp that thinks it's almost as good as the first two.)
    -Alien:Covenant (haven't seen it but it's gotta be better than the ones below.)
    -Alien5 (I hope it's good but Neil Blomkamps batting average is 1 and 2 so we'll see)
    -Prometheus (I own it, I saw it 3 times in theaters, and I honestly am just really disappointed with it. I like most of the characters and the world is awesome but there's just a lot of stupid moments that stop it from being anything but meh for me.)
    -AVPR (so bad it's hilarious. like c'mon space Marines, space truckers, and prisoners all failed to kill an Alien at one point, but a pizza boy kills a couple. Comedic gold right here.)
    -Alien Resurrection (eww)
    -AvP (fuck this pg-13 piece of fecal matter. Paul W.S. Anderson is honestly slightly better than Uwe Bowle and that's not saying much.)

    Prometheus is good, but it could have been better. It had so much potential ruined by poor writing decisions. It was originally going to be a genuine prequel that took place on LV-426. But the writers kept changing their minds over and over until it became a spin off just to set up more movies. Ridley Scott Listened to feed back that he is going to add in alien:covenant. He is going to add back the xenomorphs and everything related to it. He is also going to add in more connections to the original film. Tying to connect plot elements of Prometheus to alien. I think Alien: covenant will be good or at least better than Prometheus. He did direct The martian after all.

    I believe I remember seeing a quote where Ridley said the Xenomorphs are weapons in a war. What if the Engineers and The Predators had a war the Xenomorphs were made as a weapon, it back fired and the Predators saw that this is a challenging prey and they decided to make more to hunt down.

    - Alien (master piece)
    - Aliens (my favorite -ridley and newt fav characters-)
    - Alien 3 (bullshit and depressing (-good why newt why?!-)
    - Alien: Resurrection (shitty lesby scfi by the number movie)
    - Alien vs. Predator (one good figth scene, too much exposition, still dont give a fuck about any of the character in it)
    - Alien vs. Predator: Requiem (i couldnt give a single fuck for ANY of the characters in this movie and its fucking dark as the soul of a deadmen, like really i couldnt see nothing until the final scene)
    - Prometheus (the android was cool and the cptn of the ship was cool to, all the other characters are retards, looks good as a movie but fails to deliver anything, and it fucks up the suit scene from alien, totally hate it)

      +Joe Digger I was thinking the same thing in the movie, i was confused by that aspect. I knew they had to set up the scene of them dying when meeting the new weaponized life form for the first time. However, i feel they could of approached it a much better way, such as witnessing something interesting in the cave that the probes picked up so decided to investigate the scene.

    The thing I hate the most about Prometheus, as it is an Alien no one can deny it, is how technological superior it looks to Alien. If you're going to set off on Alien prequels, at least make it look aesthetically like the 1979 film. DO YOU EVEN ALIEN RIDLEY SCOTT?!

      +ObviouslyAtomic The mural resembles the proto xeno thing we saw at the end more than it does the queen.Also, it's a prequel because it takes place 30 years before Alien, but its a spinoff too, because it doesn't directly correlate at all to Alien, like it's sequel "Alien: Covenant" will.

    yeaahhhh, sorry, i prefer prometheus over alien. are you going to be a hater? let me tell you why, prometheus has more tension and suspense while alien does have tension but not enough, also prometheus has more lovable characters which all has a personality that can suit anyone, plus the different species are intresting than the nomal "alien" come on, engineers, trilobites, that weird snake thing, it is awesome. i have to admit alien is awesome and can never be replaced but prometheus came a little on top

  • Kenny Ross

    Your review made me chuckle, all the things you were mentioning were the things I thought when I saw it i.e. why the fuck would you start treating a weird alien thing like it's a puppy?? also when what's her name, Shaw, for no apparent reason takes her helmet off in an alien atmosphere? Why would you do that? But I liked the film, it was what I was expecting, I knew there was no Xenomorph in it as in interviews Ridley Scott emphasized it was about who the space jockey was (from Alien) so I wasn't disappointed (other than some stupid character decisions like running in a straight line).

    I'm surprised you found nothing particularly special about the movie. I will grant the horror aspect was a means to an end in sticking with the horror genre of alien, i didn't enjoy those parts always skip them; the specialness and uniqueness of the movie I found was the amount of questions and symbolic clues and references that the film evoked for me as a viewer and how powerful the theme of seeking questions at the risk of ones life amerced me into how the story played out. did u not sit on the edge of your seat when the engineer awoke, or at the pregnancy scene? those scenes were unlike anything I have ever seen in a film. I truly love Prometheus and hold it in my top ten sci-fi films of all time. i didn't expect to love it this much. furthermore it made me want to explore more of Ridley Scotts work

    Literally just watched it. I heard it was a Alien prequel and i remember the very first scene with the tall white alien dude i was like did i put in the wrong movie? So everyone lied, and the xenomorph was in the movie for like 5 seconds. Wont say its a bad movie, but its not good either. I feel like i wasted my time with this movie. SPOILER ALERT. The zombie guy was cool though, should of had more of that. And i agree with Jeremy, why tf was that tall alien dude so hostile for no reason. And why did David poison the main chicks husband? And why is there not enough Elba?

    • David Holder
      David Holder 1 year ago

      the engineers is explained as hostile because in the movie it's explained that they were coming to wipe out humanity
      and he probably wanted to complete his mission now that he was awake
      David was willing to do anything to find a way to keep weyland alive
      just like in the original alien the main crew was planned to be expendable
